Until recently the Maldives were not really attractive to the individual travelers and backpackers due to the high cost involved in spending a holiday in this destination. However, now you no longer have to stay in resorts which are separate from the local population. Backpackers can now opt for their own itineraries and travel from one island to another by public ferry, stay among the devout and friendly local people. For this there are a number of privately run guesthouses on inhabited islands and this has made the Maldives more accessible than before.
The Maldives provide opportunities to indulge in some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world. If you have an interest in marine life then the clear waters of the Maldives will act as a magnet for you. The richness and variety of marine life here is astounding with magnificent caves, dazzling walls of coral and schools of brightly colored tropical fish.
